Butt, I'm Really Freakin' Out! :(

Posted by corafree on July 25, 2006, at 1:59:14

This 'colonoscopy preparedness' is hurting my mental health!

I knew this was the last day I could eat so was eating everything I love all day.

Then I read those instructions tonight and now I'm worried I've messed up the whole thing. And I'm worried that I'll never even be able to have a colo as I'm on a maintenance narcotic for c-spine injury and I'll go into 'literal detox' if I can't take it for 2wks. I've been on some form of 'darv' or 'perc' for nearly 10years now.

It's not midnight yet so I can still eat something.

I don't even know if I can have the colo Thurs now as I've been 'some other' meds also on this ginormous list of meds which you can't be on 2wks prior to the procedure.(?)

I can't tell for sure ... but it looks like the only thing that's missing from the list is acetaminophen. I'm not sure about Valium.

What is this all about? Everyone is supposed to have wellness colonoscopies mid age. How do people on meds just 'go w/o their medication for 2wks'? I mean, I'd almost need be on a detox unit to do this.

Has anyone else ever had a colonoscopy and had to go w/o meds their 'somewhat addicted' to for 10-14 days prior to one!?

Sorry if repeating myself!

This doc knew I was on these meds and didn't discuss this with me!

Listen to this ... the only other person in my family that has had any 'documented' emotional problems was my great grandmother. She died 'in a sanitarium' of 'constipation'! Yeah ... I'd be laughing too if I wasn't so freaked out!

I'm voraciously hungry just thinking about not being able to eat after midnight tonight until 10a Thursday morning, and scared because what if I freakin' starve to death or lose my mind because I can't take my scrips?

It feels like I'm prepping for brain surgery!

I know they use local anesthesia. As far as I know that poses no danger to your life, so what's up w/ all these meds you can't take for two weeks?

I'm going to call the doc first thing in the morning. I'm alone. Need support. I'm so upset! One of the meds is the one I use to go to sleep.

"I can't go to sleep w/o something to sleep!"
